Ria – Border Collie Labrador Retriever Mix

Border Collie Labrador Retriever Mix

From Meghann: Ria is a female, brindle (mostly of a ginger color), Border Collie Labrador Retriever and  something else mix, about 48 lbs. We aren’t sure of the other breed, but here are a few traits and qualities that stand out:
She is very slender and tall, with muscular thighs and sinewy ‘shins’. Her brindle coloring covers her back, neck, legs and tail, while she has more of the markings of a border collie on her nose and chest. Ria’s chest is very deep, but again, very slender, and has a very pronounced rise from chest to under her hips. She is very intelligent, loving and attentive to people. She would much rather play chasing games at the dog park than fetch, and can outrun almost every dog we’ve met so far, cornering like a hot-dang. Ria is something of a protector of little dogs, getting between rough-housing large breeds and the smaller ones when things get hairy.

If anyone has any idea what the other breed in our dog might be, please let us know!

    I just don’t see your dog as a Border Collie/Lab mix. I own a Border Collie (purebred working mom), Labrador Retriever father, male dog. His head is way less board and his chest is not deep at all. My dog’s eyes and muzzle are set differently. With your dogs brindle (very uncommon with Lab and not seen with B.Collies) coloring, also… a very short coat. Boarder Collie/Lab mixes often have a rough coat, often short with feathery legs and tail hair, and shed a lot. I would say mostly American Pit Bull Terrier, with maybe some lab for size, and/or some B. Collie for ear width and white muzzle stripe.
